Kim Hye-soo protects her princes with The Queen’s Umbrella
New promos have been released for tvN’s black comedy sageuk The Queen’s Umbrella, such as new stills and a video teaser of our regal queen Kim Hye-soo (Juvenile Justice).
As Queen Hwa-ryung, Kim Hye-soo is wife to the reigning King Yi Ho – played by Choi Won-young (Golden Spoon) – who is effectively-revered for bringing an era of peace and prosperity for the nation. But, alas, this peace did not spread inside the palace walls and the rivalry in between the king’s sons has brought shame upon the royal home. In order to restore their dignity, Hwa-ryung requires matters into her personal hands and decides to personally handle the princes’ royal education.
The Queen Dowager – Kim Hae-sook (Tomorrow) – is fiercely proud of Yi Ho and his accomplishments as a ruler, but has small regard for her troublesome grandsons. Also complicating matters in the palace is the highly effective Kim Eui-sung (Taxi Driver) along with the royal concubines, Ok Ja-yeon (Major Mouth) and Kim Ga-eun (Kiss Sixth Sense).
Taking on the function of princes, we have Moon Sang-min (My Name), SF9’s Chani (Imitation), Yoo Sun-ho (The Excellent Shaman: Ga Doo-shim), Yoon Sang-hyun, and Kim Min-ki (The King of Tears, Lee Bang-won).
The quick new teaser characteristics Queen Hwa-ryung outdoors in the courtyards exactly where she lovingly appears down at a young youngster prince. As soft music plays overhead, the prince appears up at Hwa-ryung as she shields him from the rain with her umbrella.
With scripts by Park Ba-ra and directing helmed by PD Kim Hyung-shik (About Time, Secret Door), tvN’s The Queen’s Umbrella will be coming to our screens this October.
